Congratulations to Darragh Mooney, Moheragh, who celebrated his 21st birthday at Jerry Jackâ€™s on Saturday last.
Big congratulations to Jim Carr, Cappawhite who has been selected for the Juvenile Ireland Soccer Squad and will travel to Italy next week where they will play England, Northern Ireland and San Marino to qualify in the U.E.F.A. Tournament. At 10 years of age Jim joined St. Michaelâ€™s Club in Tipperary Town where they helped and encouraged Jim to excel to this stage of his career. Now 24 this is a great honour for our Cappawhite man who is also a keen hurler.
Jim played in the Kennedy Cup South Tipperary u13s, two F.A.I. Junior Cup Finals where he received â€œMan of the Matchâ€ on both occasions; he also played in Tipperary Premier League, two-cup matchers. Best of luck Jim and the Irish Squad in Italy. Cappawhite can be very proud.

To the Cummins family, Clonbrick, to dad Tom, mam Annette, sisters Rebecca, Sinead and Blainaid, two grannys Mai and Anna, grandad P.J. of the late Clodagh aged 19 years who was interred in St. Michaelâ€™s cemetery Tipperary on Thursday 21st after requiem mass in Cappawhite Church attended by his Grace Archbishop Clifford. 12 days previously Clodagh had a car accident and after her courageous fight for life passed away on Sunday, February 17.
